Oil pump question 92 sbc

This is probabaly a really dumb question, I received a complete engine in a box sent the block and crank out to be checked and sized,I'm putting it together and putting the oil pump in and was looking at it. There is a plastic sleeve that connects the drive shaft to the pump ( seems pretty lame) am I missing something? does the shaft go in through the bottom or dropped in from above? I didn't think to look at it better but more curious about the oil pump/ shaft alignment and the little plastic sleeve. 92 2bolt 350 truck motor. Thanks, Eric

The plastic piece is a lock that locks on to the oil pump shaft, then locks together with the distributor shaft. Since I`m not a big fan of trusting plastic, I always buy the melling hardened steel shaft avalible at any parts store for about 12 bucks.

I payed $8 for mine but I would have spent $30 if I had to. And just a note any dumb question is only a question that isnt asked.

Just my 2 cents

Thanks for the info it did seem like a fairly cheap way to put parts together, the plastic just didn't look to durable.
